King Missile in Session

From RNZ Music, 4:30 pm on 14 February 2015

King Missile
King Missile IV (From L-to-R: Dan West, Azalia Snail and John S. Hall).

Led by poet, songwriter, author, and intellectual property analyst John S. Hall, King Missile blazed a trail in the early nineties, then again in the early noughties gaining a reputation with their smart, snappy, alt-rock.

Ten years later, the fourth incarnation of the band is in New Zealand, stopping in Tauranga for the Woodcock festival, then onto Napier, Wellington, Dunedin and Christchurch.

But before they headed out on the road, King Missile The Fourth joined Zac Arnold in studio to play some songs and discuss their legacy of oddities.
